A Culture that Cares

The Best of Both Worlds

We are one of the largest family-owned, privately held companies in the world – which means as an employee you can enjoy the best of both worlds: The flexibility and close-knit culture of an independent company with the resources and reputation of 100+ years of business.

Here’s what our employees said:

A supportive culture

“My team – and the Wilbur-Ellis culture as a whole – is a big reason I chose to work here. Everybody’s so friendly, and everybody really wants you to succeed.”

Freedom to innovate

“I get to do and be involved in so many things that I know I wouldn’t necessarily get to experience at the larger corporations. You just don’t get that type of ownership with those big companies, even if you bring a lot of smart ideas and you’re excellent at your job. At Wilbur-Ellis, they trust me because they know I can bring something to the table.”

John Buckley, Chief Executive Officer

A supportive culture

“The culture here is relaxed and supportive – not super corporate. They expect quality work, but they’re not trying to push you to work really long hours in the way that you see it at some other places.” 

Freedom to innovate

“Wilbur-Ellis is a great place for someone who wants that work-life balance, but also really cares about the work, wants to learn new technologies, to see and innovate on how things are done. That’s an unusual pairing – a laid back culture with advanced, near cutting edge technology.”
